São Roque Church

Interesting
The original façade of this late 16C church collapsed in the great earthquake. The interior decoration is strikingly rich, particularly in the chapel of São João Baptista, a masterpiece of Italian Baroque, originally built in Rome in 1742, dismantled and transported to Lisbon where it was re-erected in around 1750. In the 3rd chapel on the right, note theazulejos dating from the 16C. Do not miss the paintings of the life of St Francis.
